The 7 Most Popular DEV Posts from the Past Week

Every Monday we round up the previous week's top posts based on traffic, engagement, and a hint of editorial curation. The typical week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday, but don't worry, we take into account posts that are published later in the week. ❤️

1. Pillars of Strength

Kenny gives his friend, Damion Wright a shoutout for their Linkedin post on being a Black person in the workforce. Kenny's own notes on the factors that went into the "simple" decision of adding a profile picture on DEV are an important read.

2. Getting Resourceful with Web Development

Thanks to Jose, there's an awesome round-up of free and up-to-date resources on DEV for illustrations, CSS, Tailwind, and more!

3. Finding the Second Largest Number in an Array

A breakdown of the steps to answer a common, often tricky interview stumper — and Cat will be tackling more in the weeks to come! 🥳

4. Advanced Vim Movements

Sachin helps us level up from the Vim basics with some more advanced Vim movements to arrive at the configuration file.

5. Educated Guessing with Brute Forcing

Paula shares a brute force command they made that creates guessing options from a fitting range using a genetic algorithm.

6. When Tech Gets Spooky

Heshie asks how you'd feel if every store you visited took a picture of you and then compared it with neighboring stores until they found the one that you're a customer at — with your info. You'd feel bad, right? This post explores a real-life (and all too common) example of this very creepy thing in practice.

7. Good Partnerships = Good Code

Juraj shares their perspective on how to be a great partner to your team by avoiding common traps like renamings and code generalizations to put the focus where it counts: on being a great collaborator and producing quality work.

That's it for our weekly wrap up! Keep an eye on this week for daily content and discussions...and if you miss anything, we'll be sure to recap it next Monday!
